Long’s Peak Saturday I went to Chaos Canyon with Angela. The air was as crisp as it could be this time of year. I was psyched to head to Upper but things would not be. Angela has been trying European Human Being V12. She has done the problem in two parts now. Here are some […]

Saturday I felt like it was time to get serious about trying hard problems again and my first objective was to go up and finish off Wildcat V12. I had worked out all the moves over several days, always seeming to end up there at the end of the day. This time I wanted to […]

Yesterday Ange and I went to Lower Chaos after work. We didn’t leave Boulder until about 4pm. The weather looked threatening but we pushed on, all the way up to Tommy’s Arete. The black clouds were thick and swirling. I had just gotten my stuff out when the sky opened up. The hail was pounding […]

Sunday I was tired from all the hiking the day before so I got a late start to Upper Chaos. I am just starting to get back into shape and I was psyched for Don’t Get Too Greedy V13 and Wildcat V12. First off was DGTG. I think this is a very classic problem. Possibly […]

Saturday I went up to Chaos Canyon by myself. I was searching for new problems and my mission was to hike all the way to the end of the canyon. I started up toward Nymph Lake but busted off trail soon after the Bear Lake parking lot. I have previously hiked up Chaos Creek, which […]

The other day Olson and I marched up to the Green 45 AKA Jade, to check out some of the new problems in the Area. Earlier, I reported that Nick Sherman had done the FA of Wildcat on the backside of Jade. This has been repeated now several times and it seems the consensus is […]

Kelly McBride of Ft. Collins continues to tear it up! She just made the 6th female ascent of The Kind Traverse V11 at Emerald Lake in RMNP. The Kind Traverse starts on a very obvious jug in middle of the wall and heads out left. Typically traverses are not that great, but the rock is […]

Hallets Peak Today I went up to the Park after work. My after work sessions are short and I typically don’t climb very well. It is nice to get out however, and the Park is so good I just can’t resist. Wednesdays I work until 3pm. It takes me about 20 minutes to drive home […]

Nick Sherman has snagged the first ascent of “The Wildcat Project” I would guess this would be around V12, although with good conditions it may be easier. It starts with a toe hook in a hueco, and the left hand makes a huge crossover to a good edge. A couple of tension moves lead to […]
